Quiet reflection

A piece of rusted fabric, overprinted with a number of beautifully textured weeds is undergoing an embroidery transformation. In the first quiet hour of the day more colonial, bullion and French knots, pistol and chain stitch variations build across the surface of the cloth. Silk ribbon foliage adds another layer of texture. Peace-filled. Rhythmical. Unexpected. The pleasure of stitch.
